About University College London
Disruptive thinking since 1826
Founded in 1826 in the heart of London, UCL is London's leading multidisciplinary university, with more than 13,000 staff and 42,000 students from 150 different countries.
We are a diverse community with the freedom and courage to challenge, to question and to think differently. Through a progressive approach to teaching and research, our world-leading academics, curious students and outstanding staff continually pursue excellence, break boundaries and make an impact on real-world problems.
UCL has always done things differently. As the first English university to champion inclusivity, diversity and open-mindedness, we have never been afraid to rethink the norms of education and research.
Our position in London brings unique benefits, providing all with access to a wealth of opportunities, and enabling us to contribute to everything that makes it one of the world's greatest cities.
